A fan club is a group that is dedicated to a well-known person, group, idea (such as history) or sometimes even an inanimate object (such as a famous building). Most fan clubs are run by fans who devote considerable time and resources to supporting them. There are also "official" fan clubs that are run by someone associated with the person or organization the club is centered around. This is the case for many musicians, sports teams and more.
Famous quotes containing the words fan and/or club:
“A matchmaker after a wedding is like a fan after autumn.”
“He loved to sit silent in a corner of his club and listen to the loud chattering of politicians, and to think how they all were in his powerhow he could smite the loudest of them, were it worth his while to raise his pen for such a purpose.”
—Anthony Trollope (18151882)
